    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    This is a 1956 Lord Elgin Millbrook, 14K GF bezel and case back. Just serviced and running well. New crystal, new black lizard strap. Gently hand polished. The dial is original and somewhat marked. Potentially a candidate for a refinish, but I will leave that up to the new owner. I...
  2. What got you into vintage?

    Vintage & Pocket watches
    I dusted off the Nikon this evening and was photographing some of my vintage pieces and it got me thinking about what got me into old watches. Thought I would share my story and would love to hear others. I got into watches as a result of my grandfather passing away and leaving me several of...
  3. LORD ELGIN - Can it be saved?

    Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi everyone! Saw this selling online for about 67 USD. Can that dial be cleaned up? Don't know much about vintage restoration. Any idea how much that would cost? Movement looks clean, doesn't it? Any thoughts welcome!

    Vintage & Pocket watches

The watch needs work, but my watchmaker is having difficulties with it as he's not all that familiar with Elgins. Is anyone at all familiar with this model?

  9. I inherited a watch...

    Vintage & Pocket watches
    My father died nearly 20 years ago and my mother told me for years that I could have his watch. Someday. She said she bought it in 1948 or 1949 and that it hasn’t run in years. She finally gave it to me last week. I believe it’s a 1948 Lord Elgin “Crestwood” model based on a photo I...
  10. What model is my Lord Elgin?

    Vintage & Pocket watches
    Can someone tell me about this watch? I know it was made in 1950/1951 it's a 556 movement, and its solid 14k gold. I think its a Henslee but I'm not sure. I'd love information! Thank you. Also, how is old is the Speidel wristband its attached to? Does it look like it could perhaps be the same...
  11. A Lord Elgin and a 1994 Goodwill Games Poljot

    Russian watches
    We found this handsome Lord Elgin, plus a strange looking Russian, in Tacoma's "antiques row" last week. The shop had a July 4th half-off sale that brought the grand total to $85. A shake of the Elgin brought it to life. I was totally pleased with my good fortune ... until we got home. The...

  13. vintage Gallet advert from 1938

    Vintage & Pocket watches
    I picked this up recently, it is quite interesting to see catalog pages from years (decades) gone by. On the backside of the Gallet advert is one from Elgin. I thought I'd share it as well. The Lord Elgin with the Iridium Platinum case is pretty impressive.
  14. What's my Lord Elgin worth?

    Public Forum
    I just bought a Lord Elgin manual watch. I'm starting to get very interested in watches, and hope to enjoy this forum very much. I hate to ask for help as my first post, but hopefully I can help others eventually. I looked up the serial number, and a website said that the watch was made in 1952...

  16. Made In America...

    Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi - Haven't actually got this one yet, but it is winging its way over already... Lord Elgin with the (in)famous call 760 movement. Was fairly clean, so I decided to go for it: Now, the first thing that really stands out is that "Made In America" at the 6. This is one of what is called "The...
